I'm not able to answer in helpdesk since my premuim membership has expired yesterday. Therefore I'm creating a ticket here.

Please, see here for a more detailed report: http://developer.appcelerator.com/helpdesk/view/31801">http://developer.appcelerator.com/helpdesk/view/31801

@Don regarding your question in helpdesk: I finished my app already, only this memory issue is open. The occurrence is rather high than low since the error occurs after 12 opened and closed windows in my app. (not in the minified sample app) Would be nice to see this fixed soon but it is clear in my mind that you can not solve several big items simultaneously.

Thank you, Thomas

    (from [b6641587f3393d4a89d08d952cd70102a0929bf5]) [#1432] Give TiUIWindow - a descendent of TiUIView - its own release() override, to help it detach the activity, messenger and handler. Give TableViewProxy and TableViewRowProxy - both descendants of TiViewProxy - their own releaseAllViews() overrides, to help them release items that are not in the standard children collection. Give a few other related table view classes more aggressive cleanup as well. http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/b6641587f3393d4a89d08d952cd70102a0929bf5"> http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/b6641587f3393...

    (from [026c645a26d0c83587246af2eaf8d6e82ae65179]) [#1432] If a TiContext is being released (i.e., window closes), there is no need for its app event listeners to hang around in the app event listeners collection, so remove them. They can be quite large. http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/026c645a26d0c83587246af2eaf8d6e82ae65179"> http://github.com/appcelerator/titanium_mobile/commit/026c645a26d0c...
